Obama and Romney present: Their closing arguments

posted at 12:01 pm on November 2, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

There comes a moment in every campaign when the time for thinking up new memes and lines of attack is over (leastaways, one would hope — I’d hardly put anything past the Obama campaign at this point) and to finally put into succinct words, what’s this all been about? Overarchingly, why should you vote for me over the other guy? While they’ll both continue to campaign in swing states over the weekend and through Monday, they’ll be locking up their various theses and supporting arguments and going for a strong, loud n’ proud finish — and they both laid out their visions in dueling op-eds today, via CNN.

Barack Obama hit on many of the major themes (I think we’re supposed to interpret them as ‘achievements’ or something) he’s touted this long while: “Saving” us from an economic depression (rather than keeping us meandering along in a near-recession), Osama bin Laden is dead, taking credit for decreased reliance on foreign oil that isn’t his, “fair shares” and class-warmongering, Romney wants to “take us back to the policies that got us here in the first place” (plus a Bill Clinton shout-out, whoop whoop), etcetera:

In the closing weeks of this campaign, Governor Romney has started calling himself an agent of change. And I’ll give him one thing — offering another $5 trillion tax cut weighted towards the wealthy, $2 trillion in defense spending our military didn’t ask for, and more power for big banks and insurance companies is change, all right. But it’s not the change we need. …

Change is an America where people of every age have the skills and education that good jobs require. We took on banks that had been overcharging for student loans for decades, and made college more affordable for millions. …

Change is an America where we reduce our deficit by cutting spending where we can, and asking the wealthiest Americans to go back to the income tax rates they paid when Bill Clinton was president. I’ve worked with Republicans to cut a trillion dollars of spending, and I’ll do more. I’ll work with anyone of any party to move this country forward. …

The folks at the very top don’t need another champion in Washington.

…Yes, because if anybody knows about reaching across the aisle and producing a responsible budget, it must be Barack Obama. (Also, a small but disconcerting sidebar: “We took on banks that had been overcharging for student loans for decades.” So, President Obama presumes to know what the right amount for banks to charge for student loans is? That… is scary.)

Mitt Romney, meanwhile, focused on his five major pro-growth policies, emphasized his record of bipartisanship, and reiterated that we don’t have to settle for the economic quagmire in which we’ve been living these past four years:

America is a land of opportunity. But lately, for too many Americans, opportunity has not exactly come knocking. We’ve been mired in an economic slowdown that has left millions of our fellow citizens unemployed. …

It hasn’t always been this way. It certainly doesn’t have to be this way in the future.  …

We will restore fiscal sanity to Washington by bringing an end to the federal spending and borrowing binge that in just four years has added more debt held by the public than almost all previous administrations combined. We will put America on track to a balanced budget by eliminating unnecessary programs, by sending programs back to states where they can be managed with less abuse and less cost, and by shrinking the bureaucracy of Washington. …

Nothing is ever easy in Washington, but these goals are rooted in bipartisan agreement, and I will work with members of both parties to accomplish them.  As governor of a state that was overwhelmingly Democratic, I was always ready to reach across the aisle and I can proudly point to the results. I’ve learned that when we come together to solve problems in a practical spirit, we can accomplish miracles.

Cut, print, that’s a wrap. Romney, by the way, is delivering the speech-version of his closing argument in Wisconsin this morning — I’ll post some vid later.

Mitt just gave a really good speech in Wisconsin. He even mentioned Obama not having met with his jobs council for 9 months. I wish he’d brought that up at the debates, although I guess he was concerned Obama would just lie and say he had.

Favorite Romney quotes from WI:

“On January 20th I won’t just take over the office I will take responsibility for the office”

“I’ll be for the students and the parents. The PTA does not have a union”

“I’m for business. Business is not a ‘necessary’ evil.”

He nailed it! Now our turn to take him across the finish line.

“He said when I took office, the price of gasoline was 1.80 (dollars), 1.86 (dollars). Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse; because we were about to go through the worst recession since the Great Depression…”

Say, what are gas prices doing right now?

rogerb on November 2, 2012 at 12:26 PM

I’d say the difference is pragmatism. Obama is an ideologue who does things because the theories he is enamored of demand that things be done that way, and no other. And if they fail, he “doubles down”, demanding we do more of the same, and blames everyone else for the failure. Because in his mind, he is incapable of error, and the dogma is always correct.

Romney isn’t a man on horseback; Obama has that franchise locked up as part of his Messiah act. But since he is, in most respects, more of a businessman than a politician, I tend to believe that he will refrain from doing anything outstandingly chuckleheaded based on ideology. Anybody’s ideology.

Given the choice between a boring pragmatist and an exciting “lightworker”, I’ll take the boring guy. At least I can be reasonably sure he won’t do something exuberantly stupid just to prove that some academic/social dogma or other is right.

Dr. Paul Rosbaud once observed that artists and scientists are similar, in that “When they are obsessed by an idea, they ignore reality.” The same is true of politicians, especially of the “social reformer” category, which Frank Herbert once defined as someone with “a head full of bad impulses with no legitimate outlet”.

Obama is this artistic, pseudo-scientific, would-be reformer type. Romney is not. Obama is the sort who can be charismatic in a classroom, where he can spin fantasies for hours and the students get graded on how well they parrot everything he says on a test.

Romney is someone who is used to running things in the real world, where the “grade” is defined as “do the customers come back?”.

There is a very great difference.

Me and Gumby have been chatting online and it turns out that Benghazi isn’t as big a deal as I thought it was. More like a bump in the road. The right wing is trying to make it sound like 9/11 all over again (assuming 9/11 was actually terrorists), and it’s just not the case. It will die out after Obama is reelected.

1. Shame on America

2. If it’s tied, the challenger wins.

Me and Gumby have been chatting online and it turns out that Benghazi isn’t as big a deal as I thought it was. More like a bump in the road. The right wing is trying to make it sound like 9/11 all over again (assuming 9/11 was actually terrorists), and it’s just not the case. It will die out after Obama is reelected.

Assuming it actually was terrorists???

TIN FOIL HAT ALERT!!

Wow, you got all that right except you mixed up where Romney’s and Obama’s names go in your post.

Otherwise, spot on.

I listened to Mitt’s speech in Wisconsin. He was very impressive. He’s already growing in the job of president. I also heard Obama. He was raving like a lunatic. The choice couldn’t be much clearer.

Gumby has a brain? why am I always the last to find this stuff out?

Does that make you nervous?

Then do everything you can this weekend….knock on doors, talk to all your friends/family, make phone calls, donate…etc!

Well, having one doesn’t mean that it’s functioning. 50% of Americans are brain dead.

He would have won if not for the Frankenstorm.

You’re trying too hard….your chumming of the waters too obvious.

Why isn’t maobama running on obamacare??

LevinFan on November 2, 2012 at 12:43 PM

The President has been touting the ACA for the entire campaign. Where have you been?

Or are you suffering from Romnesia?

chumpThreads on November 2, 2012 at 12:46 PM

I’m petty, I want to know if it is true that Obama’s crowds are dwindling.
